"Latest innovations and techniques to improve fuel economy"

Conference Introduction

Recunnect’s Energy Efficiency in Shipping 2014 Conference: Fuel economy and the reduction of emissions are inextricably linked. In 2007, global shipping was responsible for emitting 870 million tonnes, or about 2.7% of the global man-made emissions of CO2. Because shipping is global in its nature, it is in the interests of the ship-owners and operators to increase fuel economy and thus reduce emissions. To this end, there are regulations designed to increase efficiency/reduce emissions, including for example SEEMP and the legislation which will reduce the level of sulphur in oil.

Of course, whilst reducing emissions is necessary in this new age of sustainability and environmental awareness, the cost of fuel has risen significantly in the last decade, meaning ship operators have to either absorb the costs, pass them onto the customer, or try and reduce fuel usage. Reducing fuel usage is the most common sense approach to this issue, and there are a number of ways this can be done, from hull coatings, to route management, hybrid propulsion and even alternative fuels.

Measuring these techniques is an issue for ship-owners, because not one can be measured in situ, but has to be measured amongst everything else. So there is no way of measuring an accurate ROI. This has the effect of making any investment decision one based on rationale rather than concrete results.

Finally, new innovations in increasing fuel economy appear on the market all the time. Some have been researched for years, some only recently, but they all deserve a proper examination. Moreover, the techniques and technologies that have been in use already can be shown to have worked or not.

Key Themes

  • What works and doesn’t work for a ship operator?
  • Latest regulatory updates for ship-owners and operators.
  • Is alternative fuels and LNG a viable substitute to the marine fuel used today?
  • How the latest developments in propulsion contribute to fuel efficiency?
  • Is Hybrid propulsion an efficient alternative method of propulsion?
  • How widespread is Route management as a non-technical method of increasing fuel economy?
  • How successful is SEEMP implementation in the industry?
  • What are the latest eye catching innovations in technology?
  • How important is measuring efficiency improvements a strategic necessity for ROI?

Why should you attend?

Improvements to fuel efficiency translate directly to the bottom line. Added to the bonus effect of reducing emissions, this means that shipping companies can benefit from lower costs, and hence increased profits.

This conference brings together how these different technologies can work, how they can be used, and how they can be measured. The event will not just focus on one aspect, but a whole range, from propulsion, to hull coatings, and even non-technological aspects, such as effective route management.

Naturally, ROI is important so real profit can be measured. But, even so, small changes to a fleet can make a difference to fuel efficiency. Fleet Management revealed that they had saved more than $200m in 2012 alone from minor retrofitting across a fleet of 475 vessels just by making minor adjustments to their ships.

A global shipping industry requires global solutions. This event proposes to bring together aspects of energy efficiency that will enable a significant increase in fuel economy and hence decrease emissions for the industry overall.

Finally, by showcasing new innovations and technologies and mixing theories with case studies, this event will give delegates the chance to stay ahead of the rest of the field and learn what works and what doesn’t.

Who should attend?

  • Ship Owners, Operators & Managers
  • Pool Operators & Charterers
  • Regulators & Lawyers
  • Bankers & Insurers
  • Ports & Terminals
  • Service Providers
  • Technology Suppliers
  • Consultants & Researchers
  • Shipyards, Dry-docks & Scrapyards
